In a public-excluded meeting on November 13, the Halswell- Hornby-Riccarton Community Board agreed to halve the food budget for its fortnightly board meetings. Board deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton said the board’s catering budget will be reduced from $174 to $85 per meeting. The Star revealed last month that community boards across the city spent nearly $50,000 on ratepayer-funded catering since 2016/17. Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board was the biggest spender, with more than spent $10,000 food this term. Catering included chicken nibbles, sandwiches and savouries. Board chairman Mike Mora refused to comment about Tuesday’s decision. He has previously defended the catering. Ms Broughton said the debate on food has created “a lot of tension.” •Turn to page 5 Hearing aids – the next generation.
